Looking back over Me Made May, I decided that I was in need of some casual tops to wear over leggings. So I bought these 2 Kwik Sew patterns, 3593 and 3533.
First up is Kwik Sew 3593. I sewed this from brown t-shirting bought from Fabricland. The contrast yoke is from a big bag of scraps that was donated to me. It’s a lovely stretch fabric with a slight nap, giving it a lovely velvety feel. I deliberated over the length this top should be, and nearly shortened it to t-shirt length. I decided t keep it longer on the advice of friends.
Here’s Kwik Sew 3533. I sewed this using a remnant of jersey from C&H fabrics. I really love the colours! I found the black jersey for contrast bands in the big bag of scraps too! It’s a light jersey that will be useful in summer and winter with a long sleeved top underneath. I cut this as a large size and then took it in lots! I am still not too happy about it, it still feels a bit big. I decided on the modesty panel as it has turned out very low! Maybe I need to lift it at the shoulders?
Finally, I made this little doggie messenger bag to carry essential stuff on dog walks! I bought the printed hessian type fabric several years ago at Sandown quilt show. I found the pattern in an old Better Homes and Gardens quilting magazine.
And here’s the little doggie that I am just beginning to take for walks! His name is Barney and he is nearly 4 months old now.
